Duke University Trinity College of Arts and Sciences seeks candidates for two tenure-track professorships in Asian American Studies. These hires are part of an effort to increase the number of faculty with global perspectives and expertise across core departments, with support from the Office of the Provost and funded by The Duke Endowment.


Candidates should be at the assistant or associate professor level; distinguished candidates at the full professor level will also be considered. The search is open to discipline and to field. Preference will be given to candidates whose work is centrally located in Asian American Studies while also substantially linked to other fields of inquiry such as literature, history, anthropology, the arts, sociology, political science, religion, film and media studies, indigenous studies, gender & sexuality studies, and comparative race studies. Candidates will be considered in the context of the hiring department, with an interest to increase the representation of these studies across arts and sciences.


Candidates submitting materials by October 26, 2020 will receive full consideration.  Candidates should submit a cover letter, cv, work sample (an article or a chapter), and three letters of recommendation.  Candidates should also indicate their preferred primary department and, where applicable, the secondary department. Review of candidates will continue until positions are filled.
